The music on the mini CD is rather short, just 5 tracks for 20 minutes running time, but the quality is interesting, undoubtedly the best result achieved by DBPIT to the present. Electronics is truly descriptive and manages to conjure the atmosphere of desolation, sense of loss and alienation connected to Mallory's grotesque and absurd story. The trumpet is much better integrated into the sound structure, being not anymore the absolute protagonist, but a part of the much more solid whole. The addition of a bass guitar ensures more depth to great moments such as "Ratrace" and "Vampires", whereas the voice, filtered and distant, is probably the less convincing element, could probably use a more elaborated approach to match the rest of this alien sound world. The video part, included in the DVD, offers visual interpretations of the tracks, and is especially good if you're looking for more out-of-this-world trips.
50 copies are an almost non-existent run, so you're not very likely to find this oddity at your local music shop and by now probably not even in your trusted mail order catalogue. If you've been following the steps of DBPIT, Xxena and Mr. Mallory down the years, but also if you haven't and feel curious after reading this review, the best to do is to get in contact with the duo itself.
